“Good Food In An Orchard Surrounded By Wineries”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

Nice Family Resturant in a rural setting. Our Waitress was courteous and helpfiul. My wife enjoyed a Steak Salad with 4-5 oz of well presented steak on top....yummy. My fish and chips were great and not oily. Our friends had great tasting steaks.Deserts looked good in the case and the folksy decor kinda fits in it's Caldwell after all. We had a nice end to our wine tasting day.

“WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER AT A RESTAURANT!!!”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

My wife and 2 children were at this restaurant today ordering breakfast after Church and received horrible customer service from all except 1 waitress here, which wasn't even the waitress waiting on our table. Our waffle was burnt, our hash browns were VERY undercooked, and we ordered this DISGUSTING drink called an orange spritzer that tasted like expired orange juice. Our waitress ignored us almost the entire time we were there, so we complained to the manager/owner named Sherry or Cheryl. She was also COMPLETELY rude, sarcastic, and basically blew us off. I'd NEVER recommend this restaurant or return here!

“Orchard House”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

The setting has potential, surrounded by trees of fruit trees, overlooking the Owyhee Mountains and Snake River. It is all there. For my money, some of the "Cracker Barrel General Store" type merchandise detracts from the reason I am there, food and beverage. They would do better to merchandise their sinfully good baked goods. On occasion they bake an apple cake with caramel icing that is out of this world. The menu has some old favorites and the burger selection is good. Since it is Idaho they offer six or seven sides of potato: fried, tots, wedges, baked, etc. Orchard House is a fun place for an informal meal. It is fun to sit and daydream what could be done with the space.

“Not worth it.”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

I really had high expectations coming into this restaurant and so after spending the late morning and early afternoon at the various vineyards and fruit stands in the AVA, we decided to stop at the Orchard House to have a late lunch. We were less than impressed, the air conditioning had gone out and it was really hot this summer in Idaho, so they had two swamp coolers hooked up to the windows, but it was still uncomfortable. I can only imagine how the kitchen staff felt. We waited and waited and waited to be greeted by our server after the hostess sat us down, and than we finally got a drink order and eventually a food order. 25 minutes into waiting for our food to arrive the waitress comes over and asks if we wanted blue cheese or provolone on our order. 30 minutes later, I get a French Dip sandwich with seven, literally seven small onion rings, which were cold and the sandwich itself was tiny with three to four slices of overcooked and fatty roast beef, nothing else, mind you, on a small bun. She ordered a bistro burger, which had a healthy portion of sweet potato fries, which were obviously frozen out of a bag and a preformed hamburger patty.

For a place that emphasizes local products and fresh food, we were disappointed in not finding that to be the case and has such lost all accolades for me.

“Fun Place and Good Food!”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

We were out doing a day of Wine and Orchard Hopping. A great place with a great menu and nice outdoor seating along with all the little knick knacks for sale and a nice selection of local wines. I had the Portabello Sandwich and sweet potato fries and it was really good. The prices were good and the service was excellent. I would definitely go back and it is very easy to find. the Ste. Chapelle Winery and the Fujishin Winery and the Williamson Orchards all right close.
